About me

I am a licensed mental health therapist serving in California as Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a wealth of knowledge both as a clinical therapist and also as a coach and counselor. In the beginning of my private practice venture, I have served as an addiction specialist, interventionist and counselor for about 6.5 years. At that time, I was also the administrator for an adolescent treatment center in Northern California. I bring to the table over 20 years of experience in assisting persons with a wide range of challenges including: depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, career related issues, relationship issues, parenting and marital problems. I have also helped many people going through adversities related to major transitions, adult life goals, social skills, grief and loss, substance abuse and sex addiction. I have a wealth of knowledge in codependency and attachment theory that have been reported as life challenge liberating for hundreds of people.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. My approach combines a variety of theoretical approaches including, but not limited to: person-centered and strength-based approach, while integrating motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy, family systems and mindfulness based counseling.

I believe that every step in this journey called life is important and that we are all here to help one another to experience more joy, peace and harmony. I know it is my calling and with great joy and deep gratitude, I dedicate my career to helping others create a happier and healthier version of self.

I have helped hundreds of people walk through the tunnel of darkness. I am honored to support my clients in nurturing the light within self in order to reach inner freedom and harmony.

Looking forward to walking through with you!
With Light,

Tammy Foster, LCSW

Written on Feb 04, 2023 after therapy with Tammy for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

She’s really great on communication. She’ll say things in her perspective and by doing that she’ll say things I can relate to. Which then makes me look back at that issue we were discussing earlier and making me just feel better. Or knowing I’ll be better. Such an awesome feeling she makes me feel after every session.
